Love Island fans call on producers to REMOVE Lucie as she breaks down in tears after Joe's dumping

LOVE Island fans have called on producers to REMOVE Lucie as she suffers a "breakdown" after Joe's dumping.

Joe, 22, left the villa after falling out of favour with viewers who accused him of being "emotionally abusive" with Lucie.

In a teaser clip ahead of tonight's show, the 21-year-old surfer was seen distressed as she struggled over a decision to follow Joe or remain in the villa.

It led fans to beg show bosses to send "fragile" Lucie home.

One said: "They should remove that Girl #Lucie as quick as possible!!That baby girl ain't ok she will mentally break down…REMOVE HER #loveisland."

Another added: "Lucie could have a breakdown from this. My heart goes out to her. She clearly doesn't have the strength to stay.




"Please will the producers step in and get her out, let's not let this show mess another person up in the head #LoveIsland."

Someone else said: "Lucie is so fragile! They need to remove her #LoveIsland."

Another angry viewer said: "When will producers of reality tv realise that emotional torment is NOT entertainment? Lucie and Joe need protecting. Urgently. #LoveIsland."

Lucie hinted she will quit Love Island to be with Joe after he was kicked out.

Joe assured her he would be waiting for her outside as he encouraged her to stay.

He told her: "I found you and you're an absolute dream. I promise you I'll literally be waiting for you outside. Give me a kiss."

Lucie cried and added: "It's not going to be the same, it's going to be horrible."

Later she told the camera: "I don't know what I'd do without Joe, he's been my whole rock in here."

If he was in my position, what would he do? Would he come with me or would he stay? I don't know what to do."

Joe was holed up in a safehouse after the huge backlash about his behaviour towards Lucie from viewers.

Show bosses have been briefing him about the wave of criticism, which saw hundreds of viewers complain to Ofcom after he gave Lucie a dressing-down for being friends with boxer Tommy Fury.

Horrified viewers saw Joe tell the surfer, who he was coupled up with on the show, that he wanted it to stop.

He said: "I'm not happy with it. It's strange. I think it's time for you to get close with the girls."


Domestic abuse charity Women's Aid yesterday blasted the star, saying: "Abusive relationships often start off with subtle signs of control, so it’s important that it is recognised at an early stage.

"Love Island viewers are now very vocal in calling out unhealthy behaviour between couples on the show, and this is a positive development."
